drawing masterclasses 2019/20

  • Dates for Drawing Masterclasses in the academic year 2019/20 to be announced

Suitable for students studying a range of subjects, but especially those with a passion for pursuing architecture at degree level. 

The University of Reading opened its new School of Architecture in 2016, enhancing the University's world class reputation for research relating to the built environment.*

If you are interested in studying for a degree in architecture, we would welcome your application for one of our architecture masterclasses, where you will have the opportunity to develop the skills required to be successful as a student of architecture.

We will look at how to think three dimensionally and how to represent buildings, spaces and places through drawing.  A workshop session will introduce you to architectural drawing skills, looking at ways to sketch buildings, how to observe architectural details and start to draw the world around us from an architect's perspective. The session will also help you develop material for a portfolio for application to the course.

Throughout the day, you will have the opportunity to meet staff from the School, view the campus and teaching buildings, experience our facilities, and learn more about student life here at the University of Reading.

Architecture masterclasses take place on the London Road campus, and are free of charge.

We welcome applications from all students. However, in the event that the masterclasses are oversubscribed, we will give priority to students who have predicted grades in line with the University's course requirements, and also those who have no prior family experience of higher education.

* The University of Reading is ranked 3rd in the UK for research impact in Architecture, Built Environment and Planning. (Times Higher Education Institutions Ranked by Subject, 2014, based on its analysis of the Reseach Excellence Framework 2014).
